    I found this video of a lecture Dave Canterbury gave at an Expo. There is a lot of great information on being prepared, what to prep, what mindset you should have to be able to survive.



    Thinking of the long term is definitely the way to go when prepping.


    What do you think of this mindset and skill set?

    Same here. I liked how he touched on traps lasting longer than snares.

    I didn't think about traps lasting longer than snares until I watched the seminar, but it really does make sense. Especially, since they've been here for so long and are still being used today.

    Traps vs snares, not to disagree with an expert, but if I'm using snares I expect them to break or wear out.

    I'm also not setting snares to just get small game and predators. I'm looking at setting the snares higher and attaching them to a drag. I snare a 1# rabbit, I feed me, not even the family.
    I snare a deer, that's something different.

    Swivels and proper lock stops on snares make a heck of a difference.

    I enjoy Dave's longhunter concepts, but in many respects, he's taken a step too far into the primitive, and has localized himself in some ways. The muzzle loading scattergun may be great in Ohio and West Virginia, but out in the sticks and mountains, I will eat better with a simple .22.
